01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Could signal openly,
I expected Pru must retreat
Sorry Germany
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Europe darkening
with harsh blue light of France
Naive England helps
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: @France
I do not agree;
Please desist from these attempts
To get position

By now you should know
I am not a fool, so give
Up solo attempts

Go to some plainspeak
If you've problems with Haiku
Leave my centres be.

@Turkey
Kill the German unit
And then please resign yourself
To a three-way draw
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Not so dumb England
But why reward conniving France?
Two-way draw is good
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: French diplomatic
Mail is unanswered! Perhaps
An answer comes soon?
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Quick reply, no doubt
Delivered by French gunboat
How I will chuckle
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hmm, what will France build?
Army Paris or Marseilles?
I predict Fleet Brest!
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Spurned Englishman,
Fair Sultan or Tricky Frog?
Better choose, old chap!
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Fight for your breakfast!
Only fleets can save your bacon,
toast and marmalade.
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: @England: I'm giving you room to maneuver against Turkey by offering to swap Holland and Berlin. Otherwise your units get locked up and you have no good reason not to stab me.
@All: Let's do a three-way draw.
@All: Also, I have school and other commitments outside of Diplomacy. You cannot reasonably expect replies to missives instantly.
@England: I'm building A Brest to defend, and I'll probably leave Burgundy near my home centers. Happy with that?
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Fleet Brest for defence!
That is almost funny, but
is England laughing?
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: No draw says Sultan
There is life in this game yet
You have much to do
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Take your time Monsieur
Your is press so funny that
I don't mind a wait
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Politburo gets
ready for Argentina.
Exile awaits them :(
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: @France
No stab from England
Any such would give Turkey
The game. No fool me!

Main reason to refuse
Exchange is it gives the Turk
Targets to aim at,

If it can be done
Without risk to me, perhaps
Let us wait and see.

Army Brest is OK,
Norway locks St Pete so
Eternal support

Need a Fleet in the
Baltic at least, so building
In Edi, shuffles East

A London Army,
To convoy Eastwards to teach the
Greedy Turks lesson.

Now I know that
You have no access (UK?)
In daytime, patience!

@Turkey
You cannot get me
To stupidly stab France; which would
Give you the victory

@Germany
I'm sorry my friend
That soon is your end, best of
Luck in the future
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: The Sultan requests
German army in Vienna
To spearhead revenge
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: My haikus tonight
Have too many feet sometimes
Hard to briefly write
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: @England
We may be able
To swap this fall. Turk army
Abandoned in S.
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Belgium to Channel
Then to the Mid-Atlantic
MAO goes east.
01 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: @Turkey
Outnumbered, outgunned
Alone in a changing world
Draw is your best course.
02 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1908: @Turkey
If you gotta go
down, go out fighting. Where do
you need my soldiers?
02 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1908: @France
Doing as I said
Moving to BAL, and Edi
Across to Denmark
02 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1908: @Germany
You'll wish the train Marx
Came on never arrrived
Or he was Harpo!

(parp, parrrp!)
02 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1908: @England
I thought Lenin was
the bacilli in the train.
I'll Groucho, thanks

(side note - I saw Duck Soup last week. The "We're Going To War" song is pretty apt!)
02 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1908: (You're right, of course - I always mix them up. I daren't watch their films; likely to pull muscles laughing!)
02 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1908: The Sultan agrees
that a draw will spare Europe
from corny film quotes
02 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1908: The Sultan's journey
Hol, Bel, Pic, convoy EC, Lon
In one day this week
02 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Ordering a fleet into the English Channel, whilst on a ferry in the middle of it, was quite fun
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: @England
Again I offer
Swap Holland and Berlin
I think we are safe.

I also support
Denmark to Prussia (convoy)
To pressure Warsaw.
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: @Turkey
Sounds like a great trip! Very jealous.
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: @France
Yes to the exchange,
No to the support, tells the
Turk how to stop it!

Please leave the English
Channel - it is a DMZ
Be nice to remember!

Now I have to go
To London (in real life I
fled it years ago)!

Though oddly I was born
Two miles from Bow bells, which makes
Me a real Cockney!
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Don't be so touchy
France is defending Channel
(and Wal too next turn)
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: @France
Leaving the Channel
I warned I had to move there
The ocean beckons
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: @France
I apologise!
As time goes by my memory
Gets more like a sieve!
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Sorry, mis-addressed my message. I have several England games going.
03 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Like a sieve you say?
Defence and memory too
France will find the holes
04 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Something wrong, Turkey?
Taunting tattlemonger, why
Try being honest.

04 Oct 15 UTC Thanks to everyone for a fun game.
04 Oct 15 UTC @Germany
Time to say goodbye,
To wend your weary way, so
We'll miss you: goodbye!
04 Oct 15 UTC I pressed the button,
The one marked "Draw", time for you
Two to do the same!
04 Oct 15 UTC @France
In case no button
I'm colouring North Germany
A nice shade of pink.
04 Oct 15 UTC @England
I pressed the button
You know the one, it says "Draw"
Time for Turkey too.
04 Oct 15 UTC The Sultan regrets
the coup de grâce necessary
to end German woes
04 Oct 15 UTC Thank you all for playing and especially for doing press in Haiku form. Not sure that I have ever laughed at diplomacy press before. Please accept my apologies for the teasing and name calling, it was all in jest I promise. Never thought I would need to write poetry about when the Ottoman army stopped wearing fezzes.

I will open a thread for EOG comments.

04 Oct 15 UTC threadID=1300930
04 Oct 15 UTC EOG comments?
Not likely from me, I'm short
Of time all this week

But even so I must
Must say, well-played and sorry
I sometimes can't count!

And thank you all of
You, for making it fun, The
Haikus made good press.
05 Oct 15 UTC I'm still the King of Tyrolia. Mwahahahahahaha!
